construction. The design is based on the principle of unbalancing within the circular
path of movement of mass of the weight. This path is limited by a sector located
between two poles of an electromagnet (EM). Two electrical motors rotating in
different directions generate centrifugal force. There is a weight (G) made of m-
metal. It is mounted between two friction disks. The weight (G) is in oscillatory
motion. It moves from one pole of the magnet to the other by the circular path.
The generated centrifugal force is cyclic in nature and imparts propulsive force to
the whole device. We can control it by increasing the number of rotations of the
motor. We can change the direction of movement by turning the electromagnet
together with the weight relatively to the entire device.

Fig. 1

The centrifugal force changes from zero to maximum and back to zero. Its direction is invariable
notwithstanding that the direction of movement of the weight does change.

We can both increase and decrease the propulsive force by specifying mass of the weight, number of
rotations of the motor and magnetomotive force of the magnet.
Sergey N. Schmidt, Russia

At the heart of a new experimental device called “Karusel” (carrousel) there is a “motor - unbalanced
flywheel – generator” system. Sergey N. Schmidt has carried out an experiment that shows the generation
of excess power or excess torque, which accelerates the rotor and the flywheel of electric machines. Moreover,
during the experiment it has been observed that the generated power is increasing and power consumption
of the motor is decreasing. “Karusel” is just a reduction of a prospective industrial inertial dynamic generator
(IDG). The IDG enables to convert the kinetic energy of the Earth’s movement and to apply it for doing
useful work.

Fuel energy companies invest money in alternative power engineering

The giant BritishDutch oil company Royal Dutch/Shell Group has announced its intention to put
annually from 500 million to one milliard US dollars into alternative power engineering. Shell Group
has already founded an independent company that specializes in hydrogen technologies. As a number
of other oil giants, Shell is getting ready in advance for hard times when exploitation and extraction of
hydrocarbon raw materials will make no commercial profit. One of the latest projects of Shell in the
field of hydrogen power engineering is the first hydrogen refuelling station in Tokyo that provides
special transport with liquid hydrogen. The practical realization of the project belongs to Showa Shell
Seikyu KK (Show Shell), which is a Japanese company 50 per cent owned by the Royal Dutch/Shell
Group of Companies (Shell).

The concern British Petroleum, London competitor of Shell, is also interested in problems of alternative
power engineering as well. As soon as by 2007 BP expects to get no less than 1 milliard dollars from
selling electrical energy generated by solar cells. Companies engaged in motorcar industry have their
developments in this sphere as well. In 2003 the Japanese company Honda Motor starts line production
of FCXV4, a hydrogen cellpowered vehicle. However the company prefers not to enter into a
partnership with other companies that have a concern in industrial application of hydrogen fuel and
plans to begin mass production of pollutionfree motor vehicles no sooner than in 2015 for the new
technology is still very expensive.

It is evident that transnational corporations do not want to lose their control over the world economy.
Foreseeing a collapse of the traditional system of energy carriers and a changeover to alternative
energy sources, fuel and motorcar industries appropriate promising developments, attract necessary
specialists into their laboratories and form packages of patents for key technologies ahead of time.
One may expect that the development of alternative power engineering will accelerate thanks to
efforts of large manufacturers.

There is a description and principles of operation of the device, which was created and patented by
Mikhail Smeretchanski (France). The principle of operation of such gravitational motors allows to get

Motion in the device is realized due to the

difference of buoyancy forces which acts
on the opposite arms of the moving
elements. The difference is achieved by

This mechanism demonstrates the

invention relates to a device allowing the
mechanical production of energy, using
the variable-volumes elements by the
gravitation and the Archimedes force for
its operation. Variable-volumes elements
will change their volumes according to
position of the masses, in their inner parts.

The device is made up of two wheels (1)

elements (see Fig.1), which are immersed

Interference disc electric generator is an improved version of the Ecklin generators. It seemed logical
that to produce electricity more efficiently the design of the generator had to be altered to rotate less
internal mass with a balanced rotor disc. At the same time it has to allow for a collapsing magnetic field
within the coils without rotating the magnets or the coils.

Using more powerful neodymium magnets and amorphous coils, the system was designed in such
a way as to allow the flux to circulate in a magnetic loop while incorporating magnetic shielding.
Some simple experiments with magnetic shielding were performed. At that iron strips, ceramic
magnets and small transformers were used. The magnets and the transformer were positioned
stationary opposite of each other with an air gap between the magnet and the transformer.

Once the apparatus was assembled the author proceeded to move the metal strips in and out of
the air gap between the magnet and the transformer which has produced an AC pulse in the
stationary coil. Using this principal and refining the design there was built a mechanical device
incorporating magnetic shielding into the design. It was named the Interference Disc Generator
being that the metallic thin iron disc interrupted the magnetic field in the air gap (neutral zone)
between the coils and magnets.

This method is unique in that it produces electricity with greater efficiency due to both the magnets
and coils being stationary, brushes and a commutator in this design are not needed and it requires
very little startup torque.

Conception of Magnetic Gas
Prepared by our correspondent Alla Pashova

Editor: We publish an interview about fantastical statements made

by the inventor Viktor N. Dubchak. It is unlikely that somebody of our
readers will seriously take these statements. The methods applied for
experimenting seem especially queer. The reason for the publication
is direct analogies revealed between the inventor’s statements on
successful obtaining of non-metal matters with magnetic properties
and well-known works by Valerian Sobolev. If Dubchak’s experiments
on rotation of matter in a magnetic field without supplying outer
energy represent the facts, then possibly many of our readers will be
interested to reproduce his dangerous experiments with nitric acid
and glass wool. Many years have passed since Russian researcher V.N.
Dubchak had experimentally discovered the phenomenon of non-
metallic magnetics and worked out a magnetic gas (MG) conception.
However representatives of the official science have never given
attention to the discovery made by the inventor in spite of the fact
that results of the researches could be a valuable contribution to the
development of high-energy physics.
